    Anyone else adapting to tremors, or have tips for doing so?

    The one I like best is from Steve Lindsay. Very smooth and easy to move a vise on. I have an old GRS it works but not as smooth . Others have used a Potters turntable and say they are good which makes sense, as it it built to hold wet clay. Eric

    Question: I want to cut deeper

    I find on Aluminum, cutting the design first is the best. As stated by the best too many chances of a mistake. Bike parts have many raised areas and corners, a mistake can be disaster to fix. Cut then clean out to add depth to your background area. The metal is thick enough to go deeper and...

    Engraving motorcycle parts

    If it is aluminum as a lot of MC parts it will probably go bad. If not right away it will in time. On brass some success Steel as well, but it is a crap shoot. It is a nerve wrenching thing if it starts to peel near the end of the job or shortly there after. Remove all possible problems and...
